The 24-room Hotel Duomo Firenze is a mid-range boutique hotel with a prime location right by one of Florence's star attractions -- the Duomo. Though rooms are small and simply furnished, they are clean and
some feature fantastic views of the cathedral and its iconic dome. Public spaces are few and limited to a breakfast room with a small bar and a terrace, again offering gorgeous views. (Breakfast is an additional fee.) Overall, this is a plain and simple property with few amenities, though a central and scenic location that's reflected in its rates. Travelers seeking to stay in this area should also consider the nearby Hotel Albergo Firenze or Hotel Bigallo Florence.
Compact, cozy hotel with great terrace facing the Duomo
High above the piazza -- so removed from street-level noise
in spite of its central location -- this hotel is located on the top floor of
an ancient, four-story building right across from the Duomo. The
hotel is accessed by an old cage elevator from the ground floor, but there isn’t much
in the way of public areas. The
lobby is small, equipped with just the front desk, a large white sofa, and a
bookshelf separating it from the breakfast room, where a collection of white tablecloth-clad tables and a corner bar fill the space. The room opens out onto a lovely, narrow terrace furnished with a couple of tiny tables that offers gorgeous views over the cathedral and its incredible dome looming overhead.
Located right across from the Duomo, a short walk to most sights and the main train station
The hotel is
situated directly across from the Florence Cathedral and its famed cupola, the iconic dome of the
Duomo. The ancient monument looms over the hotel, surrounded by a piazza filled with gelato shops, restaurants, cafes, and small boutiques. The main train station, Santa Maria Novella, is about a 10-minute walk away, offering easy access to the rest
of Italy and beyond. Most of the top sights are within walking distance, including the Uffizi Gallery (seven-minute walk), Galleria dell'Accademia (six minutes), and the Ponte Vecchio (nine minutes). Florence Airport is less than 30 minutes away by bus or car.
Small, clean, simply furnished rooms; some with beautiful Duomo views and private balconies
There are two types of rooms available: Classic (with no view) or Superior (with Duomo view). Rooms are small, with Superior Rooms offering a bit more space, and simply furnished with minimal decor. All have large, comfortable beds framed in wooden headboards, oak floors, and bare walls in pastel shades, plus amenities that include small, flat-screen TVs, minibars, electronic safes, work desks, and free
Wi-Fi. Some of the Superior Rooms have private balconies with gorgeous views of the Duomo looming overhead -- well worth the extra cost -- while others overlook lackluster courtyards. Bathrooms are
compact, but clean and equipped with heated towel racks, hair dryers, bidets, and
small walk-in showers.
Breakfast room with small bar and lovely terrace overlooking the Duomo, plus free Wi-Fi
Firenze offers a good breakfast that includes coffee, a variety of yogurt, cereals, fresh pastries, eggs, and bacon, though with an added charge. There's a small breakfast room adjoining the lobby with a lovely outdoor terrace offering stunning views of the Duomo. There's also a bar serving coffee and various drinks located in the breakfast room. Wi-Fi is free and reliable throughout the property. The hotel can arrange valet parking at a
nearby garage for a daily fee and staff is accommodating with laundry
services, tours, and restaurant reservations (front desk is open 24-hours). Small pets are allowed if the hotel
is notified in advance.
